One of few things open late besides bars and restaurants. No charge for just looking and it was interesting to learn pinball history and see oldest machines

Whether you consider this a museum or not is probably dependent on your age. Young people that have never seen or played a pinball machine would definitely consider it a museum but as someone in my 50s I look at it as an amusement place....More

The Pinball Museum was definitely a highlight of our trip - so much fun. $11 for unlimited pinball and 80s video game play. Plus they have a bar to buy beer while you play. The pinball games range from the 50s to present day. I'd...More

If you ever enjoyed playing pinball, it’s worth it for $15 for unlimited play. My husband and I played for a bit, left and walked around, then came back for more play with the wristbands they provide. I could have stayed there all evening!

We visited with family from 30's to 70's and all enjoyed it. We didn't have time to play we did enjoy looking around. The $15 entry fee was only for playing the games; we were gated in with no cost as long as we didn't...More

While I could have used ear plugs, my 9 yr old was in heaven! Pinball and video games for days- a total bargain for a $12 all day wristband. Located right in the heart of downtown, we were able to take a break and stroll...More

We had the best time at the Pinball Museum. You pay one flat fee and then play as much as you want. There is a large selection of not only pinball games, but video games as well. They even had an old Sega Genesis setup...More

We weren't sure about this, but the staff let us walk around before we decided to spend an hour or so reliving our youth, playing all sorts of pinball machines and vintage video games. I just wish a place like this was in my town!...More

You pay $13 to enter. You can stay as long as you want. The machines are set on free pay. You also get a wrist band when you pay. The wrist band allows you to leave and come back later on the same day.

I see someone supplied the hours of business. I'd like to add that earlier is better if you're looking for them to be less busy. You're also more apt to find nearby street parking. It's AMAZING! If you're considering it... More
